Rihanna designs sunglasses for Dior
Rihanna is a famous pop singer, and her full name is Robyn Rihanna Fenty. She is known around the world for her gift of singing and has become an international artist with millions of fans around the world.
Rihanna collaborated with Dior to design a sunglasses collection that seems to have hit the market by storm and everyone is delighted. These sunglasses will be sold exclusively at the Dior shops starting June of this year. There is one frame with six variations – silver, pink, blue, green, and red will sell for $840. The 24-karat gold version will retail for $1950. Rihanna has already been teasing the fans on her Instagram account with photos of some of them.
This is the second project that Rihanna has done with Dior. Last year she took part in a campaign and short film set in Versailles to promote the Esprit Dior collection of Dior bags, which was shown in December, 2014 in Tokyo. Dior’s CEO Sidney Toledano stated, “We are very pleased to partner for the second time with Rihanna, She is an artist, an entertainer, an entrepreneur, a philanthropist, and a style icon for today’s generation.”
Rihanna stated, “The process was pretty seamless. I spent a day at Dior with their eyewear design team. I started by looking through all the archives to see what they’ve done in the past, then got acquainted with all the new materials. I literally sat there and drew and drew until I was happy with the design, and the team illustrated it for me right then and there. We picked materials and colors that same day, and after that it was a matter of weeks before I saw the first prototype.”
